Encryption and Government Hacking

We live in a world that is becoming increasingly interconnected – from our smartphones and tablets to our televisions, cars, washing machines, and thermostats. Encrypting the data on these and other devices helps protect against malicious hacking, identity theft, harassment, and other crimes. In addition, encrypting data in motion is critical: hackers and foreign governments seldom have your devices in their actual possession, but without encryption they can still access your communications on a massive scale without your knowledge.
